    What mic are you using for your voiceovers on these videos if you don't mind me asking?

    Also, interesting coincidence, that 80s pop beat 10 is the EXACT same loop I used on a song I made 5 or 6 years ago back in my garageband days. Nice to see it's still alive and kicking!

    For that particular video I used a Blue Microphones Spark, which is a relatively low cost condenser. I also processed the voiceover track in iZotope Nectar 2, which has some pretty cool presets for spoken word recordings.

    That is a coinicidence! I actually picked that loop almost at random. I was just looking for a relatively simple, MIDI-based drum loop to use for the video.
